COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond, cloudy, milky (colloďdal by cold). The cloudy appearance is created at low temperature but disappears when the beer gets warmer or when it is kept too long in the cold. Fine fruity with a scent of the used spice, coriander and bitter orange. Smooth beer, thirst-quenching but mild, slightly acidulous, powdery consistency on the tongue, not bitter

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Small bottle. Very pale colour, quite thick foam. Fresh orangey aroma, cloves and cinnamon in there too. The beer is wonderfully foamy but unfortunately this one has a very disturbing dense bitterness which makes it taste... dirty. It tastes like a beer with the yeast poured into the glass, even though it’s properly poured. I have to try another bottle.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2006
A lot like the Hoegaarden white, but slightly better. Very light, smooth and drinkeable beer. Fruit and ritch for a white beer.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2006
On tap @ Café Belgique, Amsterdam. Big white head upon a hazy pale yellow/golden body. Nose is light citric with wheat, spices and notes of yeast. A nice touch of honey in the flavor. Slight bitter finish. Light bodied and highly refreshing.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Hazed, very light straw color with a wispy dissipating white head. Big lemon oil aromas. Just a hint of coriander and sweet wheat. Quite citric from the start a real light suck on a lemon this one has, nearly to the point of having a radler quality. The lemon seem to have a near artificial quality that continues to cling to the mouth and throat throughout the quaff. Quenching perhaps, but this one is actually getting annoying. At first I thought the feel was quite nice, but with the lemon oils sticking around that is starting to slide. Interesting at best.

Kinz (3258) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2006
750, corked and caged. Lovely pale yellow, cloudy, with a suggestion of green and pink in my mind, good head faded slowly. This is exactly what a wit should look like. Aroma is pleasant, gentle wheat with a good bit of bitter orange, and a hint of coridander. Flavor is light anise intertwined with wheat and orange notes, finishing with slight coriander bitterness. Dry and light on the palate. Highly refreshing, integrated spices, really quite excellent.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 2, 2006
750ml bottle, Tesco. Cloudy straw colour, thin white head. Wheaty nose, coriander and orange (that’ll be the flavourings on the label), hops. Not much else. Flavour is wheaty, slight lemon, very metallic. Slightly sweet. Didn’t enjoy all that much.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2006
On tap. Pours hazy light golden with a rather large head. Typical belgian wheat beer. Slightly citric with a slight feel of coriander. Some sweetness and a hint of yeast.

harrisoni (13288) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2006
75cl bottle from Tesco. Cloudy old gold colour with thick lasting white head. Yeasty, spicey, orange, coriander, orange peel aroma. Hoegaarden wannabe. Nice, attractive aroma, hit of wheat to start with and then lovely lemon/orange mix to finish with herb and more cereal. This is very refreshing and overall a nice beer of its style.
Earlier Rating: 3/24/2006 Total Score: 3.3
Bottle. Cloudy lemon/gold, disappearing white head. Good Belgian white beer aroma. Lemon, cereal, refreshing in mouth. Ticks all the boxes. Not exceptional, but no faults either. Nice tasting wit. I like this style of beer.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle, 750ml. A cloudy pale yellow colour with an average head. Light aromas of orange and corriander. Pretty typical taste of wheat, orange and corriander. A citric finish with wheat and moderate sweetness. Light to moderate carbonation. A pretty typical, perfectly acceptable Witbier.
